It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! The magic has well and truly arrived. I don’t know about you but I get quite nostalgic when it comes to Christmas. Although I have very few memories of Christmas as a kid, I have a few special snippets. Little things can trigger those memories and I love it. Growing up in the 80’s was awesome, and I do remember that hampers were everywhere. Whatever the occasion there was a hamper. It wasn’t like today no way. In my day some old ‘Del Boy’ would turn up at the door, take your order and a few days later it would arrive on a milk float! How I remember the Hamper of Multicoloured Fizzy pop turning up. A hamper that today would have every health professional having a heart attack, but I loved it!
So when I got the Chance to review a luxury Christmas Hamper from Prestige Hampers, I got that that little fluttery feeling deep inside and those luminous bottles of pop from my childhood danced inside my head! I tried not to get too excited, I knew nowadays that Hampers weren’t what they use to be. Most, although great on content arrive in a less than Christmasy dull box. I had a rather posh Christmas Hamper from a very well known posh superstore a few years back. It arrived in a red cardboard box, I guess they tried. However, Prestige Hampers do state that they specialise in hampers containing only the finest foods and wines, with experience and an enviable reputation. I couldn’t help but be a little bit excited, an enviable reputation I liked the sound off!
My ‘Suprise Hamper’ arrived a few days later. I was too excited to find out what I had been sent, I ripped open the very well packaged parcel to find the glorious ‘Christmas Traditions‘ Hamper priced at £49.99. Now before I even get into the hamper contents. This hamper arrived in a beautiful Vintage style chest. Not a card box, a wonderfully designed chest. The contents were packaged nicely stuffed with little shredded brown paper, which added to the rustic feel of the hamper. Prestige was already onto a winner!
